With autumn’s welcomed arrival, there are plenty of community events for the whole family to enjoy.
In Green Country, check out the First Friday Art Crawl downtown on Oct. 6. The Tulsa State Fair is finishing out its residency at Expo Square through Oct. 8. For a bit of ghostly fun for the season, the Second Saturday Architecture Tour – starting at the Tulsa Foundation for Architecture – will have a haunting twist on Oct. 14. After your spooky tour, check out the Kendall-Whittier art festival in the district, also on the 14th. Finally, Oktoberfest is back! Bring your best lederhosen and an empty stomach to River West Festival Park on Oct. 19-22 for a memorable, or not so memorable experience (depending on how many steins you down)!
In and around Oklahoma City, the Paseo Arts District’s First Friday Gallery Walk takes place on Oct. 6. If you’d prefer to celebrate Halloween throughout the month, Frontier City will have Fright Fest through Oct. 29, and Orr Family Farm is hosting their Fall Festival through Nov. 11.
Celebrate Chickasaw culture and heritage at the Chickasaw Nation annual meeting and festival in Tishomingo through Oct. 7. If you need a pumpkin for your Jack O’Lantern or pie, check out Annabelle’s Fun Farm in Welch through Oct. 29, Chester’s Pumpkin Patch in Piedmont through Oct. 31 or the Pumpkin Festival at Shepherd’s Cross in Claremore through Nov. 4.
